The Design and Simulation of Wind Turbine Grid Controller


Article Preview

The future trend of wind energy conversion systems is to draw the maximum power from the available wind. Unfortunately this is not possible with high capacity wind turbine, as they can be rotated only for a particular speed. The wind turbine system stated here is a 3.2 KW wind turbine which is allowed to rotate at any speed to grab the maximum power from the available wind. The size of the wind turbine system is small, as a result they can be placed on the roof tops and de-regulation of power can be done. This wind turbine system provides a three phase variable frequency AC voltage and this variable frequency AC is converted into constant three phase 230V AC by using the converter and inverter systems.
